Podcast 1.4: Paul and the followers of Jesus at Corinth, part 1
This fourth episode is part one of three that look at the followers of Jesus at Corinth through Paul's letter known as 1 Corinthians in the New Testament. After discussing the city of Corinth, I go on to consider the history of Paul's interactions with these Christians, which was characterized by rocky relations. Then we delve into the situation among the Corinthians that led Paul to write his letter, primarily the issue of social and religious divisions within the Jesus groups at Corinth (in 1 Corinthians, chapters 1-4). This episode is part of series one (”Paul and his Communities”) of the Religions of the Ancient Mediterranean podcast.
